This is your property ?


Pech Gary Bas is a newly converted traditional farmhouse with 3 large bedrooms sleeps 6 people which sits high on a hillside overlooking the picturesque and sleepy village of Castanet. The house with private pool is secluded within over a hectare of private land, offering a relaxing and tranquil location in the heart of rolling French countryside and woodland with spectacular views over the hills and surrounding area.

Pech Gary Bas is close to the nearby villages of Monteils and Parisot which both have bakeries, small grocery shops and, very importantly, good family-run restaurants! 20 minutes away the bustling market town of Villefranche de Rouergue offers good shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. The airports of Rodez and Toulouse make Pech Gary Bas an easily accessible holiday destination.


Newly restored with exposed beams and original stonework, the house retains an abundance of traditional charm yet offers excellent modern facilities and amenities. There are 3 double size bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms with exceptionally spacious living rooms and a fully equipped modern kitchen.

Outside, the shaped swimming pool with Roman steps is built into the hillside and has wonderful views to enjoy as you leisurely swim up and down. There are plenty of loungers and parasols on the terrace around the pool in this peaceful and secluded haven.

The pool is fully fenced for safety in accordance with strict French laws and has a constant depth of 1.3m, making it perfect for children and adults alike.

The gardens around the house are landscaped and there is a delightful sun-trap terrace in front of the house with table and chairs which is perfect for relaxing or eating al fresco.

With many trees in the grounds, there are lots of shady spots for guests to sit and enjoy a good book. The extensive grounds and surrounding countryside offer plenty of walks and nature lovers will be amazed by the varieties of wild flowers, butterflies and birds which fill this unspoilt corner of France.

The house is great for children. The owners have 2 children who delight in being able to play safely in the fields and woods around the house, untroubled by traffic.
